The only constant in the ever changing beer industry is that customers are always looking for new and exciting craft beers. Nick’s, with help from companies near and afar, has installed a state of the art Growler Station based on the same operating principles as bottling lines. We use a blended gas counter pressure system. This state of the art technique forces beer to fill the growler from the bottom up reducing loss due to foam, while keeping the beer as fresh as possible.
While Nick’s carries a wide array of craft beer in bottles and cans, our Growler Station has opened the doors to endless possibilities. Our Growler Station taps are constantly changing with beers that are extremely rare or even limited to draft only. Our list is always changing, so check back with us regularly or you may miss out on that one beer you have been waiting for.
Heavy Seas - Greater Pumpkin
In the most worthy of pumpkin patches and during the silence of the midnight hour, the Great'er Pumpkin raises up and pours a rich deep and burnished orange color. Heady aromas of bourbon, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and clove linger seductively over the thick white head of this tremendous brew. Its love at first sip as the full malt body, dominated by British crystal malt, brown sugar and pumpkin, slowly washes over your tongue. Bourbon barrel aging rounds out the flavors with notes of oak, vanilla, and bourbon. Pairs well with crisp autumn weather, crunchy fallen leaves, and the knowledge that your kids will be asleep soon so you can raid their Halloween candy bags.
Ommegang - Witte
Witte is our version of the classic Belgian wit or "white" ale. Witte, which is actually Flemish for white, is brewed with malted and unmalted wheat, orange peel, and coriander - offering a refreshing style that showcases the Belgian talent for brewing full-flavored ales that are also light and balanced. It is pale straw in color, slightly hazy from the yeast, and topped with a huge white, fluffy head.
Free Will - Cloudy with a chance of Charcuterie
Pouring to a vibrant straw-yellow color that is plenty cloudy, a result of the lactose used in brewing and its unfiltered nature. Despite a cloudy appearance this drink is all tropical on the aroma, pineapple and other island fruit waft delightfully from the glass. Brewed with two elite hops, Mosaic and Citra, this brew is a true juicy powerhouse with its hop forward flavor profile. Notes of grapefruit and other citrus fruits immediately come through along with an expected hoppy bitterness.
Union - Skipjack Pils
Skipjack Pils is brewed with real Bohemian Pils Malt! Super clean and crisp, Skipjack is brewed with German Mandarina Bavaria and Michigan grown Zuper Saazer hops. It’s light malt body and grassy citrus flavor and aroma will keep you moving fast on the water. You’ll love the cut of our jib with this easy drinking, super refreshing true Bohemian Pils.
Founders - Lizard of Koz
This one is near and dear to our hearts. Brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki wanted to make the birthday of his little sister, Liz, a special one. So he did what he does best and brewed a stout using a few of her favorite ingredients: fresh Michigan blueberries, rich chocolate and vanilla aged in bourbon barrels to round out those beautiful flavors. Liz was floored and we think you will be too.
Southern Tier - Imperial Cherry Gose
The finished beer is a striking, lustful shade of red with a persistent white head and durable lacing thanks to the large portion of wheat in the grist. The nose is defined by equal parts bright lactic acidity and cherry notes with a hint of coriander. On the palate, the strong lactic acidity is accentuated by the natural tartness of the cherry juice. Quantitatively, this beer is quite sweet, but we find that this level of residual sweetness is just enough to balance the acidity and that the overall perception of the beer is actually quite dry. The beer finishes very clean and in conjunction with the salt in the finish, it definitely makes you want to come back for more.
Ommegang - Rare Vos
Rare Vos is Flemish for "Sly Fox," and the name of one of Brussels’ great cafes. It has a sweetly fruity malt character and yeasty spiciness. A fine dose of yeast permits the beer to mature and mellow to make a very drinkable Amber ale.
RAR - Nanticoke Nectar
Nanticoke Nectar starts with citrus notes that progress into bold grapefruit and pine, then finishes clean with a balanced, hoppy bitterness. A subtle yet deep English malt profile elevates the hop notes while a slight sweetness underlines the brew.
Anchor - Blackberry Daze
Blackberry Daze IPA™ is a synergistic union of blackberries and hops. Because the blackberry was once wildly rampant in California, it is our ideal choice for this singular Anchor brew. It gets its hop bitterness and some hop aroma in the brewhouse, but most of the action happens in the cellar when the fruit is added during secondary fermentation. A special blend of loamy, herbaceous hops for dry-hopping complements the brightness and deep complexity of the blackberries. The result is a funky synthesis of rich earth and ripe fruit, hop bitterness and blackberry tartness, with alluring color and aromas up front, sublimely intense flavors, and a refreshingly dry finish.
Unibroue - Lune de Miel
It’s inspired from a distant era where the father of the bride would give his new son-in-law honey - flavoured beer for the first month of marriage. Introducing Lune de Miel. Like all honeymoons, this divine nectar is simply unforgettable.
